Big Love 5.7: Couples

Whew, what an ending to Big Love 5.7 tonight ... but, first, what the show was mostly about ... couples:

Ben and Rhonda apparently won't be one.   Ben has second thoughts the morning after, which is good, since Heather independently decides that she wants Ben to be her boyfriend.  But what happens if Heather finds out about Ben and Rhonda?  And will Ben be able to resist if Rhonda tries to seduce him back?  Rhonda's husband is with Albie - another couple  - and what will Rhonda do vis-a-vis Ben if she finds out about this?

Cara Lynn and her teacher are doing just fine, and Cara Lynn's new let-down hair looks good, too.  Nikki still has no idea, but Margene gets a glimpse at Bill and Nikki's wedding.

Speaking of which, Bill and Nikki do get married - with Barb officiating - but Barb is not happy when she sees Nikki and Margene re-sealing their marriage with Bill, after Barb has indicated she would rather not, at least not now.  In fact, Barb's so unhappy about this that she's about to walk out-

Which brings us to the ending.   Somehow, the authorities have found out that Margene was only 16 when she married Bill.   The authorities don't care about the marriage, they care about the sex, and are investigating Bill for statutory rape.  Barb's whisked away in a police car as a potential witness.

We have a perfect storm brewing in this wintry season of Big Love.  Bill's marriage closer to shattering than ever before - with Barb on the edge of leaving - but that being trumped by the law, no doubt under LDS pressure, coming after Bill hammer and tong.  And, just for good measure, Albie's moving closer to ordering Bill's assassination.
